Where did Roald Dahl get all of his wonderful ideas for stories?
From his own life, of course! As full of excitement and the unexpected as his world-famous, best-selling books, Roald Dahl's tales of his own childhood are completely fascinating and fiendishly funny. Did you know that Roald Dahl nearly lost his nose in a car accident? Or that he was once a chocolate candy tester for Cadbury's? Have you heard about his involvement in the Great Mouse Plot of 1924? If not, you don't yet know all there is to know about Roald Dahl. Sure to captivate and delight you, the boyhood antics of this master storyteller are not to be missed!

Horrifying and Delightful

Reader Dan Stevens does a splendid job bringing mean-spirited candy-shop owners and bull-headed prefects to life in these memories of Dahl's childhood. He captures Dahl's voice beautifully-- bubbling with the dark humor and pranskter-pleasure that are such powerful ingredients in all Dahl's writing. I found myself recounting bits of this book to friends and family, and I very much look forward to listening to "Going Solo" soon.
